Sports Nutrition Supplements that Work

My latest podcast: Sports Nutrition Supplements that “work”. Yes, the title is pure click-bait. But that is appropriate for a class of garbage, snake-oil products that set the standards for overpromising and underdelivering.

What I have to say is not your typical biochemistry scientism waffle. This is a real world discussion about a half-dozen supplements that I have consistently measured offering mild, drug-like, tangible benefits… in extremely specific contexts, within extremely narrow parameters, that are not what you typically hear.
